Mulch it!

We went and picked up a load of wood chips from a local friend who takes down lots of trees on the island. We brought it down to the nursery and for about 5 hours, it was my job to sift the entire load of chips through a compost screen. This was done to produce finer particulate chips, used to mulch the smaller pots in the nursery, that bigger chips just won’t fit into nicely. We also decided to try screening the peat moss for our soil mixes, just to speed up the process of mashing the soft blocks into powder for the mix. Worked great!
